== Task No. 1 - Identify Project Team ==
When a project is scheduled to begin the design phase, the Project Team is to be identified by the City Engineer and/or the City Traffic Engineer, depending on the scope of the project. The purpose of this team is to provide input, information, support, and execution throughout the project planning, design, and construction. The Project Team will generally include the following members: Project Manager, Traffic Engineer, Construction Inspector, Traffic Maintenance Technician, Maintenance Representative, Engineering Technician, Contract Specialist, Law Department Representative, and Finance Representative.

{{top}}
{{top}}


MARC's rules and regulations do not permit federal dollars to be used for project design services. Therefore, Consultant selection certification, to KDOT, is not applicable as long as this MARC rule is in effect.
The City shall select and negotiate with a consultant for project design in accordance with the [http://online.encodeplus.com/regs/overlandpark-ks-gbp/doc-viewer.aspx#secid-103 '''City Resolution No. 4550'''] if the design is funded solely with local funds. If federal or state funds are used for the design, the City will use an approved list of consultants furnished by the BLP and will follow the current BLP Consultant Selection Procedures. If the City intends to use federal funds in the construction engineering, and use the same consultant for both preliminary engineering (PE) and construction engineering (CE), following the current BLP Consultant Selection Procedure for the PE will satisfy the requirements for the CE selection.
 
Prior to the beginning of the selection process, Project Manager shall notify via email DPW and CE of upcoming RFQ for consulting services. The project name, list of firms to receive the RFQ and any other pertinent information will be provided.
 
For more information see Chapter [[Media:3.0 PE Consultant Selection and Agreement 2020.pdf|'''3.0 Preliminary Engineering (PE) Consultant Selection and Agreement''']] and Chapter [[Media:11.0 CE Consultant Selection and Agreement 2020.pdf|'''11.0 Construction Engineering (CE) Consultant Selection and Agreement''']] of KDOT's LPA Project Development Manual.
 
When federal funds are used in the preliminary engineering, the City will provide KDOT a certification that appropriate steps have been completed and the process complied with all applicable regulations. Any work done prior to obligation of federal funds will be non-participating.

Home I-Vision II-Preliminary Design III-Final Design IV-Pre-Construction V-Construction VI-Retrospect

Introduction

Phase II begins the engineering design and plan preparation process for a project. The date for beginning this process will depend upon the approved project schedule, budget and time anticipated to complete the various phases/tasks.

The project team will play an important decision-making role in managing a project. This team will consist of City staff and private consultants (if applicable).

Intra-department, public involvement, and utility company meetings are commenced during this phase.

Field check plans are prepared, distributed and reviewed along with preliminary construction cost estimates. Also, R/W and easement documents are completed and, if required, appraisers are hired.

Phase II Checklist

Task No. 1 - Identify Project Team

Top

When a project is scheduled to begin the design phase, the Project Team is to be identified by the City Engineer and/or the City Traffic Engineer, depending on the scope of the project. The purpose of this team is to provide input, information, support, and execution throughout the project planning, design, and construction. The Project Team will generally include the following members: Project Manager, Traffic Engineer, Construction Inspector, Traffic Maintenance Technician, Maintenance Representative, Engineering Technician, Contract Specialist, Law Department Representative, and Finance Representative.

Task No. 2 - Decide if City Staff to Design

Top

The City Engineer and/or the City Traffic Engineer in consultation with the Project Team will decide whether the project will be designed by the City Staff or by a Consulting Engineer.

Task No. 3 - Consultant Selection/Certification

Top

The City shall select and negotiate with a consultant for project design in accordance with the City Resolution No. 4550 if the design is funded solely with local funds. If federal or state funds are used for the design, the City will use an approved list of consultants furnished by the BLP and will follow the current BLP Consultant Selection Procedures. If the City intends to use federal funds in the construction engineering, and use the same consultant for both preliminary engineering (PE) and construction engineering (CE), following the current BLP Consultant Selection Procedure for the PE will satisfy the requirements for the CE selection.

Prior to the beginning of the selection process, Project Manager shall notify via email DPW and CE of upcoming RFQ for consulting services. The project name, list of firms to receive the RFQ and any other pertinent information will be provided.

For more information see Chapter 3.0 Preliminary Engineering (PE) Consultant Selection and Agreement and Chapter 11.0 Construction Engineering (CE) Consultant Selection and Agreement of KDOT's LPA Project Development Manual.

When federal funds are used in the preliminary engineering, the City will provide KDOT a certification that appropriate steps have been completed and the process complied with all applicable regulations. Any work done prior to obligation of federal funds will be non-participating.

A feasibility report shall include the physical location of the project, a description of what is to be constructed, a cost estimate, and other necessary information required by the Law Department. The description project centerline shall include the permanent improvements (not tapers for street projects).

An example of a project description is as follows:

The construction of Switzer Road from north of the centerline of 159th Street to south of the centerline of 151st Street. Construction will include a dual roadway with a median. Left turn lanes will be located at side streets as required. Concrete sidewalks will be located on the west side of Switzer Road. An asphalt bike and pedestrian trail will be located on the east side of Switzer Road. The project also includes construction of storm sewers, street lights, restoration, and other items incidental to the street construction.

The Project Manager, in conjunction with the Law Department, will determine if all necessary City ordinances or resolutions have been executed in order to authorize the project. Examples of possible documents are:

Exhibit No. II-4a Resolution on advisability of the creation of an Improvement District,
Exhibit No. II-4b Resolution authorizing and providing for the creation of an Improvement District,
Exhibit No. II-4c Ordinance providing for the public improvement of a Main Trafficway.

Task No. 5 - Prepare Project Schedule

Top

If a Consultant is to be hired, the anticipated construction time period shall be provided. The Consultant shall submit a schedule, indicating the design phases, R/W / easement submittal, meetings, bid opening date and construction time period. If the City Staff is designing the project, a similar schedule shall be prepared by the City Project Manager.

Final and complete analyses and application for permits by the City may be completed after Field Check and detailed design information is available. All investigation and permit acquisitions will be conducted in accordance with the referenced manual and BLP Policy Memos.

KDOT will control the environmental process task for projects with categorical exclusion. The complexity and effort will depend on each project. The exception would be if an Environmental Assessment or an Environmental Impact Statement is required. In this case, the City or Consultant would perform this task with KDOT and FHWA approval.
